Need: Etude de l' Integrqtion du genre dans la securité alimentaire

Le Gouvernement de la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC), en collaboration avec l’Institut International d’Agriculture Tropicale (IITA), a initié le Projet de Recherche pour l’Innovation Agricole (PRIA). Notre étude de v autiliser la methodologie de recherche-action participative, orientée sur le développement agricole pour les petites subventions compétitives pendant la campagne 2014 – 2015 pour la Province du Sud-Kivu. Notre étude va aider aussi à identifier ces inégalités de genre dans les chaines de valeur ciblées et d’autres aspects socio-économiques dont les innovations agricoles font face ; car assurer l’égalité des chances et d’opportunités aux femmes et aux hommes vis-à-vis des innovations agricoles, des moyens et services de production, la participation à la prise de décision, l’accès aux ressources etc., s’avère incontournable pour le développement de la province du Sud-Kivu, en particulier et de la RDC , en général.

L’agriculture et le développement rural sont d’une importance cruciale si l’on veut réduire de moitié, d’ici à 2015, la proportion de la population vivant dans l’extrême pauvreté et souffrant de la faim.Une augmentation de la production de qualité doit mettre l’accent particulier sur l’égalité des genres étant donné le rôle important joué par la Femme. Celle-ci constitue une grande partie de la main d’œuvre de production ; et tenir compte des besoins de l’homme en défaveur des ceux de la femme pour qu’elle puisse jouer pleinement son rôle, conduit à la réduction de l’efficacité et à une moindre qualité. La sécurité alimentaire concerne toutes les catégories socio-économiques : hommes et femmes, jeunes et adultes, riches et pauvre indépendamment de leur appartenance socioculturelle. Il est ainsi indispensable de se rassurer que toutes ces catégories aient accès aux innovations agricoles et aux mêmes opportunités pour améliorer leurs conditions de vie.
L’analyse genre et des aspects socio-économique dans les chaines de valeurs ciblées permettra de comprendre les inégalités entre l’homme et la femme en tenant compte de leurs diversités socio-économiques aux quelles le projet de recherche d’innovation agricole (PRIA) doit faire face pour l’atteinte des résultats de qualité. L’intégration des femmes (la prise en compte des besoins et contraintes des différentes composantes de la population œuvrant dans ce secteur) et leur émancipation dans les programmes de développement agricole doivent constituer une préoccupation de tous les partenaires qui veulent relever le défi du développement dans la conjoncture socioéconomique et culturelle actuelle. . L’analyse des réalités sociétales devrait permettre de concevoir des méthodologies d’interventions adaptées à chaque catégorie de population, suivant les moyens disponibles. C’est dans une stratégie globale de lutte contre la pauvreté que devraient se situer toutes les actions en faveur des femmes dans cette Province. Dans cette perspective, le souci est de répondre positivement aux objectifs du millénaire pour le développement (OMD) à savoir la sécurité alimentaire, la lutte contre la pauvreté, la promotion du genre et l’analphabétisation.

Need: Study of gender integration and food security

The government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), in collaboration with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), initiated the Research Project for Agricultural Research (PRIA). Our study of the utilization and methodology of the participatory action-research focused on agricultural development for the small competitive grants during the 2014-2015 season for the province of South-Kivu. Our study is going to also help identify gender inequalities in targeted chains of authority and other socio-economic aspects including agricultural innovations; by insuring chances of equality and opportunities for women and men vis-à-vis agricultural innovation, resources and production services, the participation in decision-making, access to resources etc… proves essential for the development of the South-Kivu province and the DRC in general.
Agriculture and rural development are of crucial importance if we are to decrease by half by 2015, the proportion of the population living in extreme poverty and suffering of hunger. An increase of quality production must place particular emphasis on gender equality given the important role women play. This constitutes a large part of the production labor; and takes account of the human needs to the detriment of those women so she can fully play its role, leading to decreased efficiency and lower quality. Food security concerns all socio-economic groups: men and women, young and old, rich and poor, regardless of their sociocultural background. It is essential to assure that all of these categories have access to agricultural production and have the same opportunities to improve their living conditions.
Gender analysis and socio-economic aspects in specific authority chains allows for understanding gender inequalities between men and women in light of their socio-economic diversity to which the research of agricultural innovation project (PRIA) must face in achieving quality results. The integration of women (taking into account the needs and limitations of the different components of the working population in this sector) and their empowerment in agricultural and development programs should constitute a concern of all partners who want to rise up to the challenge of development of socio-economic conditions and cultural circumstances. The analysis of societal realities should allow room for the design of adapted intervention methodologies in each category of the population, according to available means. This is a global strategy to fight against poverty that should identify actions in favor of women in this province. In this perspective, the concern is of positive response to the objectives of the Millennial Development Goal’s (MDG), namely food insecurity, the fight against poverty, the promotion of gender and illiteracy.
